We have counted days on this world. If a man calls himself, ‘I’m smart,’ he must know how he is using these days and how he is spending his daily activities.
Don’t think that 21st century people, they have invented the technology, the computer, the planes, they are dancing and modernising, that they have reached somewhere. No. they become more animals, worse than animals. Because in the old days, people at least they were running to keep some orders. Now, the one who is in the order, they are not keeping orders. The ones that who’s saying, ‘I am Muslim, I am believer,’ is not keeping what Allah is ordering.
The knowledge and the stations that the people they are reaching in this world, it is to make the man to become humble. Not to be proud with himself with the knowledge and with everything that he is doing. No. the knowledge, it is to teach you who you are and who your Lord is. Knowledge, it is to teach us that He (swt) is forever; Abadi and Samavi Lord. And you are Abadi and Samavi servant.
Those people in jahiliyyah time also they have houses. According to their time, they have nice clothes that they were wearing. They had their own laws. They think that they were on the right ways, so many of them. When Holy Prophet came and say to them, ‘this is the wrong road. You are going towards the direction of sheytan, to Jahannam. Turn your face to Jannat,’ they uprise to the Prophet (asws).
Some children, they went with the Prophet. Parents they know and they said, ‘he’s putting wrong manners to our children.’ Some, their parents went with the Prophet, their children started rising against to the Prophet. Some wives went to the Prophet, the husbands were rising against to the Prophet. Some husbands went to the Prophet, wives rising against to the Prophet.
Same thing is happening now. Don’t think that you are just, ‘ohh.. so hard for me. Ohh..this is too hard.’ What is hard for you?
You are not putting one step forward. Not ten. You are not giving up from anything. Nothing. You are just leaving the Kufr lifestyle. That’s all. Later claiming, ‘I am Muslims. We are the best of the Muslims.’
No you are not. Allah is saying to us, ‘if you want to change, be with Saliheen.’ Be with those ones. Listen to them. Take it from them and learn and apply to your life.
If you are taking this sohbet seriously, you have to show serious activities. If you don’t take it, it’s still okay with me. I will speak. But we must wake up to our own selves. The Tornado is about to happen. We must wake up before it’s too late.
